Guys like Curtis Painter, Charlie Whitehurst, Luke McCown and Derek Anderson found work, while free agent Josh Freeman is wondering what happened to his once-promising career.

The Oakland Raiders were Freeman's best bet before free agency, but they preferred Matt Schaub. Freeman might have to wait until after the draft to find a team.

Fantasy Impact:

Last year at this time Freeman was poised for a big year but it obviously never panned out.

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

A timetable for Terrelle Pryor’s departure from the Raiders is starting to emerge.

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, teams have put “feelers” out regarding Pryor to gauge the trade market value for an athletic, albeit inconsistent quarterback who wants out of Oakland.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders are in no rush with no team activities in the near future, not until April 21. But the team wants him out before that so he's not a distraction. He could end up being released. Pryor ranks below newly-acquired Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin on the depth chart.

Brian Hoyer (ACL) ahead of schedule

The Matt Schaub trade is good news for Brian Hoyer, who has every intention of being the Browns' starting quarterback in 2014, and is confident he can beat out a rookie for the job. (The Browns were interested in acquiring Schaub.)

The Browns are studying all of the top quarterback prospects, but general manager Ray Farmer said he won't necessarily draft one with the No. 4 overall pick. The Browns also have the No. 26 overall pick in the first round.

Now, Hoyer can focus on coming back from his torn ACL -- he's ahead of schedule -- and trying to pick up where he left off last season, when he went 3-0.

Fantasy Impact:

Hoyer is currently penciled in as the starter, but the draft may change things. With Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron as potent weapons in the passing game, whoever is quarterbacking the Browns will have some fantasy upside.

Raiders trade for Matt Schaub
Friday, March 21, 2014, 10:25am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Oakland Raiders will trade a late-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft to the Houston Texans in exchange for quarterback Matt Schaub, a league source told ESPN.

Schaub, who has a $14.5 million salary-cap figure and a $10 million base salary for 2014, became expendable when the Texans signed former Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a two-year deal Thursday night.

Not long after Houston acquired Fitzpatrick, Oakland made its final move on Schaub.

The Cleveland Browns had expressed some interest in Schaub, who could have been reunited with former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. But the Raiders wanted Schaub even more, according to a source.

The trade between Oakland and Houston, two teams scheduled to pick in the top five, could impact the 2014 draft and how high quarterbacks will be selected.

Fantasy Impact:

Given Schaub's play in 2013, he's hardly a savior at QB, but the Raiders now have a stopgap option as they try to find a franchise passer. Consider this a boost for Denarius Moore, Rod Streater and the freshly signed James Jones.

Case Keenum ruled out for Week 16

Texans QB Case Keenum has been ruled out of this week's game because of a thumb injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Schaub will get the start and may be able to post a decent line in garbage time. He's also a threat to throw a pick-six or two.

Texans QB Case Keenum suffered a sprain right thumb on his throwing hand and had an MRI. Wade Phillips: "He'll be evaluated, but it's a concern."

Fantasy Impact:

Keenum had some garbage time upside if you thought the Broncos would pull away in this game and the Texans play from behind. Matt Schaub could reappear as the starter if Keenum can't go this week.

Kubiak: Matt Schaub is an 'unbelievable pro'

HC Gary Kubiak said Texans will consider starting Matt Schaub remainder of season. Called him an "unbelievable pro."

Fantasy Impact:

This is probably bad news for Andre Johnson, whose production has exploded (especially TDs) since Case Keenum took over at QB.

Owen Daniels targeting Week 14 return
Thursday, November 14, 2013, 10:11am

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Tight end Owen Daniels said Wednesday he still hopes to return for a Dec. 5 game at Jacksonville.

Daniels last played Oct. 6 in a loss at San Francisco. After fracturing his right fibula, he was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.

Fantasy Impact:

Through five weeks, Daniels was the #10 TE, so needy teams could find him useful if he can knock off the rust quickly in his return. Keep in mind that his QB has changed, so it may take some time to get on the same page. Case Keenum also likes to throw to his receivers more than did Matt Schaub. Garrett Graham's production has been a disappointment in Daniels's absence.
